“The Doll’s House, Part 2” by Lucas Hnath
January 23- February 10, 2019
In the final scene of Ibsen’s 1879 groundbreaking
masterwork, Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to
leave her husband and children and begin a life on her own.
This climactic event—when Nora slams the door on everything
in her life—instantly propelled world drama into the modern
age. In A Doll’s House, Part 2, there’s a knock on the door
many years later. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it
mean for those she left behind?

“The Roommate” by Jen Silverman
March 6-24, 2019
With a recent divorce and her son living across the country,
50-something Sharon posts a listing to fill the empty space
of her Iowa home. But she quickly learns that her new
roommate Robyn, a vegan from the Bronx, couldn’t be further
from the ladies in her book club. When Sharon begins to
uncover Robyn’s secrets, she taps into a deep-seated desire
to abandon her comfort zone and live a life of danger and
adventure. Soon Sharon discovers that turning over a new leaf
can have unintended consequences in this wicked comedy that
puts The Odd Couple and Breaking Bad in a blender.

“The Legend of Georgia McBride”
by Matthew Lopez
April 17- May 5, 2019
As luck would have it, Casey is fired from his gig as an Elvis
impersonator at a struggling dive bar on the same day his wife
announces they are going to have a baby. So when Miss Tracy
Mills is hired to create a drag show to replace his act, Casey
decides to trade in his jumpsuit for a dress and discovers he
has a whole lot to learn about show business—and himself. A
joyous and music-filled comedy about fi nding your true voice.

“The Bake Off”
conceived by Cristina Alicea
June 11-16, 2019
Take one play, break it in three parts, add three directors and
three casts, and--voilà!—you’ve got the 8th annual directing
“bake off ,” an engaging exploration of the “ingredients”
different directors use to create the same play. Each
performance is followed by a Q&A with the directors and
audience. More information on the chosen play to “bake off ”
will be announced in early spring 2019!
